New Economical Femtosecond Laser for Micromachining

This solid-state laser delivers just 900 fs pulsewidths, with a pulse energy of up to 100 µJ, at a repetition rate of 100 kHz (with optional operation at up to 200 kHz). Together with its high beam quality (M2 < 1.4) and pulse-on-demand operation, the laser’s high energy femtosecond pulses enable the production of micron […]
